June Progress Pix/Sugar Free Experiment

Monday, June 18, 2012

Hey ya'll,

I just had a great workout, and thought I would come home and take some progress pix. I had gotten out of the habit of taking progress pix, and I would like to reinstate this habit.

The last Progress Pix I took were from January 2012, 6 months ago. I am not going to collage those pictures next to my newest pictures, because it will just make me upset. I haven't made any progress in losing lbs, inches, or body fat % since January, so there's no reason to compare.

These newest progress pix mark my decision to go refined sugar-free. I have a sugar addiction, and will eat tons of it when given the chance. I think that this is a significant part of why I have not lost any lbs, inches, body fat, etc. since my last progress pix (or since this time last year, for that matter). I tend to let myself eat a LOT of sugary foods, for fear that if I don't I will end up bingeing.

Therefore, refined sugar-free is an experiment. If I binge more than I did while allowing sugar, I will go back to allowing sugar. But I want to see if the excess refined sugars in my diet are keeping the last 20lbs on. I have a feeling they are.

To all those who read my blog, thank you. I know I have been terribly inconsistent on Sparkpeople, but I'm coming to terms with the fact that if I don't AT LEAST track my food, I will not lose these last 20-25 lbs.

Here we go:

And there you have it. Here's to the sugar-free experiment!

    Looks like a great starting point to me! I feel like there's always more work to be done, but you look great and it can only get better! Good luck with your sugar-free experiment! I think it's great that you're aware of yourself and what makes you binge (I'm the same way with sugar) so just keep an eye out for yourself! emoticon
